I teach one course, several classes per week. My school system uses Moodle. As a parent, I have asked many teachers why they won't use Moodle and they say it is too difficult and time consuming. I tried to set up a Moodle page for my classes last spring and after a full day of getting nowhere, I put it aside. Now my blank Moodle page is no longer showing on the school's website.
Today I spent about 6 hours and have nothing done. I set up a new Moodle account. I read the instructions for setting up a new course many times. The buttons to click on simply don't exist on my Moodle Home. I downloaded the Moodle software on my Mac after spending an hour making space for it. I installed. (Why? Can't this be done all online?) After installing and using the installer proerly to put the program in my applications folder, I get an error box telling me it can't open until I put it in my applications folder. Uninstalled, deleted. Dis it all over. Same problem. Backed out and located it IN my Applications folder. Clicked on it. Got an error message that I have to put it in my Applications folder.
Can't I just log in and set up a Class Page without all this hassle? An explanation of how this is sone would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
